Writers Tears Bottling Note

Writers Tears is a light, sweet Irish whiskey made using a mix of single pot still and single malt whiskies, resulting in oodles of honey'd, fruity notes. Wonderfully easy to drink, it would make for a great introduction to Irish whiskey for folks new to the spirit. No writers were harmed in the making of this whiskey.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Soft and sweet with thick honey spread on granary toast. Hints of citrus peels.

Palate: Honey develops on the palate. Mellow notes of vanilla and golden malt. Green apple skin, caramel and a hint of oak.

Finish: Warming, sweet and long.

Overall: Very yummy Irish whiskey indeed.

User Reviews of the Writers Tears Pot Still Blend

Writers Tears

Great value for the dollar Irish Whiskey! Very smooth.

Makes a great Manhattan

Our waitress explained that my typical Manhattan whiskey was not available, but they served Writer's Tears & the patrons love it. I tried it & it made a superb Manhattan.

Smooth as a summer rain in the emerald isle.

One of the smoothest whiskies I have ever enjoyed. Simple, uncomplicated, delicate and still very rewarding. An outstanding value and my whisky of choice for an everyday dram.

Sample

Received a sample of this and I'm searching frantically for a bottle. To date the best I've had. I know that better is out there but for now I'm happy with this.

Mild and mellow

A mild and mellow sip that isn't too overpowering but still delivers with nice notes of caramel and a hint of unrobe mango.

Delicious warming smooth whiskey reminds me of a more expensive green spot or redbreast. Can't wait to try another one and a great price

half belfast

Sweet and honeyed as other reviewers say, and nothing disagreeable. Burn mellows out with a few drops of water. But a bit thin. Wanted more depth, spice, earth, something with character and eccentricity. Particularly with such a great name.

Beyond my expectations

I had never heard of the Writer's Tears brand but I had some time at Shannon Aiport so I thought I'd taste a few as there was a samplingof 8 or so. I was first drawn in by it's beautuful golden colour but completely swept away and kept in by the taste. I wasn't expecting great things honestly as it was in such a lower price range compared to what it was being tasted with and I hadn't heard of it but I was very pleasently surprised. Now I only wish I brought back two bottles!

One of the best at the price level under 50€

Spider is right!

My actual rating 4.5 / 5.0

Bought this based on blog post extolling the virtues of this dram. I have to say, it is heavenly. Incredibly smooth with moderate amounts of warmth and incredibly smooth. The only con for this bottle is the shipping costs to the US. Otherwise, one of the best bottles - bar none - that I have tasted.

Would be happy to drink this all day. Highly recommended.

Inoffensively inoffensive

This isn't unpleasant but like so many spirits for sale today it clearly has not benefitted from refill casks.
There is altogether too much whisky for sale that tastes of nothing much and smells of nothing much. This is one of them.

Mr,

I drink a lot of Scottish Whisky after trying Writers Tears it has gone to the top of the list for me.

22nd December 2015

Love it

I am a Bushmills drinker but I tried this cause a friend bought me a bottle for my birthday. I think I will be buying more claiming writers block. Perhaps I will turn into a Brendan Behan.

Macallam 25

Had 25E in my pocket as I was leaving Ireland after a 2 week golf trip. Bought a bottle at the Dublin Airport. What a surprise. Being a confirmed scotch drinker, Writers Tears is my new drink of choice. To bad it's not available in the U.S, but I'm only 30 minutes from Canada, so I' m making regular trips to pick a case for myself and friends. We love it.. Wish it was available here. Not going to spend $700 Macallam anymore.

Hands down. The best whiskey on the planet

I received a bottle from a friend who visited your beautiful country. I enjoy Michter's rye when I can find it, but I am a bourbon drinker. I am no longer a bourbon drinker... This is the BEST brown liquor that exists. There is no hyperbole here. Smooth as silk, balanced, sweet lingering finish. A whisper of oak. And the cleanest finish of any I've tasted. Worth every nickel. Well Done!!

Exploring the Iceberg

As an unfamous, not infamous, author since 2005, I find Authors Tears and aligning blend to my sweet charm, my own authors tears still smoothly sailing along on whiskey bay. Like the name of one of my books, Exploring the Iceberg, tasting Authors Teas is exploring the iceberg with its multi levels of enjoyment. Humpty Dumpty: After the Fall would rather enjoy it on his palate of yolk, or perhaps choice ...

Unbelieveable! I'm cryin' for more

This deserves a perfect 10! As someone who is new to the whiskey/whisky scene, this is super-smooth, light, perfumed, and now a cherished drink. It tastes far, far more expensive. :)

amazing

£28 at the minute at M&S and worth every penny! An amazing creamy potstill blend loads of toffee coconut on the nose with some spice in the taste highly recommended

1st March 2015

8th January 2015
